Welcome to my 31 Days of Christmas movie marathon. This is a feature where I watch a different Christmas movie every day from now until Christmas. The rules are simple: The movie has to be something I haven’t already seen and I must watch at least one Christmas-themed movie a day from now until December 25th. They’ll be some bad ones and hopefully a lot of great ones. Why put myself through this? Because it’s a good way to catch up on a lot of Christmas movies and a good way to satisfy my OCD.
On the 19th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me… Deck The Halls

I really did not like this movie.
